Headlights on my 2008 Toyota Avalon will suddenly go out while in operation. This will occur in either automatic or manual mode. You will need to turn off the lights then turn them back to the on position to get them to come back on. This can be very dangerous at night on a country road where we live. Local Toyota dealership in richmond, Kentucky,40475 stated the low beam head lights needed to be replaced at a cost of $343 per headlight bulb plus labor which included taking off the front bumper to install the headlights. Total cost to replace two head light bulbs, approximately $1,000. Vehicle only has 40,000 miles on it.

On the passengers side of my 2008 Toyota Avalon touring, the hid head light went out. Both high beam lights went out soon after as I began to use them until I could come in for the repair, about 4 days. Local Toyota dealership advised that the hid head light would cost $563 to replace. This cost breaks down to $350 for the part (one hid light), and $157 for the labor as they claimed to need to do complex things to be able to replace this bulb. To replace the low beam light along with two high beam lights would amount to a total of $700. What" how does a 2008 have a failed hid head light by 2009? also, how do both high beam lights go out"

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Avalon. The contact noticed that the headlights were not aligned. The driver's side headlight was lower than the passenger side. The motorized headlight self-leveling adjuster failed. The dealer replaced the driver's side headlight motor; however, the failure continued.
